about

The impetus for Massachusetts-based producer Burial Grid (AKA Adam Michael Kozak) is nearly always fear. That fear, harnessed and transmogrified from paralysis-inducing dread into an engine for positive creativity is the prism. The eclecticism of tones and colors that have cumulatively resulted with each successive release has revealed a spectrum of emotional and social complexity of our most base-level impulses.

Music For No Tomorrow, Kozak's sixth release under the Burial Grid moniker, and first for Werra Foxma Records, is no exception to this pattern of sonic bait-and-switch. Absent are the moldering 8-bit plunderphonics of Where We Go, the sprawling electro prog-rock of My Body Dissolves, the abject pessimism and blackened ambience of Negative Space, the grief-stricken doomwave of We've Come for Your Flesh, and the exercises in detached, analog synth minimalism of Shores of Quiddity.

In their place blooms a kaleidoscopic thicket of an endless array of colors - a holt for spritely and ever-mutating synthesizers, lullaby bells, dancing synthesized drums, found sounds crushed by ancient samplers, obsolete cell phones, and dictaphones. This all points to a new set of colors unexplored by Kozak: Ecstasy. And consolation.

For ...No Tomorrow, Kozak draws inspiration from human achievement, and casts aside his usual misanthropy. Influences from First Nation American, late 20th century Japanese, West African, and Afro-Cuban music make their home next to a palette that draws heavily from 70s electronic pioneers and late 90s Warp Records.

Music For No Tomorrow doesn't choose to fight the swarming, eco-doom of living in late-stage capitalism, but instead seeks to achieve a type of acceptance of our collective October in self-indulgent escapism. Perhaps fleeing existential dread is the only balm potent enough to provide pause and allow the clouds to part, giving one the clarity to celebrate all that the world is on the cusp of bucking from its burdened back before it's too late. To live like there is no tomorrow.
